Why You Should Own a Villa in Cannes

The stunning town of Cannes is now synonymous with glamour, style and luxury. It is one of the European hot spots of the rich and famous, commonly associated with its revered film festival. Tourists clamour here to get the opportunity to mingle in the same circles as well-known celebrities and also to take in the delights that this amazing town has to offer. When people look for European properties, they often look for luxury villas in Cannes so they can enjoy this wonderful place on a regular basis.

Climate and location
In spite of its fame now, Cannes was originally a small and quaint fishing village. Located in Cote d’Azur on the French Riveria, it is the perfect destination for anyone who wants to be on the coast. Stunning sea views and idyllic surrounding countryside add to the magic of staying here.
As it is on the coast of the South of France, Cannes has a perfect Mediterranean climate. This is ideal for those who want to get away from the changeable weather conditions of the UK and soak up the rays on a more regular basis.

Things to do
Regardless of how you prefer to spend your leisure time, you will definitely find something to pique your interest in Cannes. Horse racing, ballroom dancing and, of course, shopping are just a few of the activities you could sample. However, it is the Riviera that provides the setting for some of the most popular activities in this area.
The diverse range of watersports available here are fun and thrilling ways to spend your free time. Swimming, jet skis, diving, sailing and kitesurfing are among the exciting sports you could try. If you are a night owl and looking for something lively to keep you entertained, you will be pleased to discover that this town is a vibrant place to be in the evenings with many bars and clubs to choose from.

Eating out
One of the greatest pleasures of spending time here is the fantastic food and eating experience. Whether you want the luxury of an evening of fine dining or just want to grab a quick bite to eat while you enjoy a break from a spot of retail therapy, Cannes has something to offer everyone. As it is a former fishing village, seafood is one of the highlights of most menus and something you should definitely sample while you are here.

Events throughout the year
Undoubtedly the most famous event to take place here is the Cannes Festival, which is held in May. Prices to stay in the town at this time are at a premium and this is where owning your own luxury villa is an advantage. This is not the only thing you can look forward to in Cannes. Fireworks competitions take place throughout July and August and these are a spectacle that needs to be seen to be believed. September is also a great time to be here too, as Cannes plays host to the International Boat Show and the Regatta Royales.

If you are looking to spend more time in a warmer climate and in a location that is diverse in what it has to offer, then consider looking for property for sale in Cannes. The properties for sale here vary greatly in style and price, so you should soon find something to suit your needs and tastes. By owning your own luxury villa here, you will be able to take advantage of everything Cannes has to offer throughout the year – lucky you!
